    Default "Emolga and the New Volt Switch!" Review Thread

    BW25 - "Emolga and the New Volt Switch!"

    Still travelling with the gang, Bianca challenges Iris and her newly-caught Emolga to a battle which Iris accepts! Being forced to withdraw her Pignite due to infactuation, Bianca sends out Minccino and Emolga uses Volt Switch of her own accord. Why is Emolga using moves without orders and what unusual quality does her Volt Switch have?

    It’s a good thing Emolga is so cute or I would have no patience for it! She is such a little troublemaker. Both Ash and Iris need to keep a better eye on their Pokémon. Iris is such a delusional parent :p It’s really funny.

    Snivy is so awesome, she needs to put Emolga in its place!

    It is nice to have these episodes that have so much focus on just the pokemon interacting with each other. It's no Island of the Giant Pokemon, but it's nice to see the pokemon actually have personaliity, something a few BW pokemon are still missing out on.

    While I do feel that Iris was forcing Emolga to battle too much, she really is spoiled. It's nice to see Snivy being the grown up and keeping her in line. I have seen a lot of people think Emolga is disobedient. That is not the sense I get here. She's uncooperative at least. (think a rebellious teenager, she obeys when she wants, and is reluctant otherwise) She just needs to learn to be a bit less selfish.

    Yeah, Emolga only real obedience issue when it comes to battling if using Volt Switch when Iris doesn't want her to. Other than that, she listens....unless she really doesn't want to battle.

    You know what I think would be neat? If the three Watchog here were the originally the three Patrat from the last episode.

    "Playing around?" Wrong.

    I loved that bit when she swiped the others' food. She looked so cute with that plump little belly, and I just love how she and Snivy start up their rivalry just because the latter knows what a spoiled little brat she is. XD

    Yay, I we finally get some extended, decent Snivy screen time outside of a typical battle scene!

    I like the sort of "girls being catty towards each other" vibe Snivy has towards Emolga while at the same time acting somewhat as an older sister trying to help her grow, even if she pretends to act indifferent or mean.

    Its episodes like these that sort of make me wish the Pokémon anime was more centered on the Pokémon themselves sort of like the shorts before the first few feature films.

    So I like Snivy and all the other Pokémon even more than before, but found the type interactions really odd, for instance Snivy being able to very effectively defend against Simisear's (if that's spelled correctly) fire attacks using her leaf tail, or the fact that Oshawott made no effort to use water attacks against Simisear.

    Also, is it me, or did the way in which the Watchogs were drawn and animated seem somewhat different than Lenora's Watchog was?

    Actually it was going to use razor shell but Simisear punched the hell out of Oshawott before Oshawott could do anything with it.

    Anyway I don't care what you classify this episode, it was immensely fun and enjoyable. The interactions between the Pokemon were really nice. I hope we have similar episodes down the line where the group's Pokemon interact with each other for the majority of the episode.

    One thing I like about Black and White/Best Wishes is how it's bringing back almost strictly Pokemon interaction episodes. The gang was just their typical selves in this ep, relaxing and training, if Semisear hadn't shown up.

    Wow, I'm surprised to see that there are only so little reviews here. Seems that only a bunch of people actually liked this ep.
    As far as I'm concerned, I've got to say that mere Pokemon-interaction episodes are a bit too childish for me, meaning that except for Simisear, this ep wasn't overly exciting.

    However, I really loved how badass Snivy was. I totally enjoyed seeing her stand on the sidelines with that superior look on her face as if she wanted to say "Come on, YOU'RE ALL such little kids". If you ask me that was hilarious and very cool alike. And let us not forget her grabbing Emolga by repeatedly using Wine Whip. If Pokemon could speak, Snivy would definitely have said "You stay put, spoiled little brat"

    Although being a bit childish here and there, the episode as a whole was decent and Snivy was just great.
    "When I was younger, I used to dream of nothing other than becoming powerful through being victorious in battle, and so I trained endlessly."
